Where the heck is Janet?

Disclaimer- This is not really me. Or. Is it??
I'm thinking of me dressed in red and white stripes like Waldo. I'm hiding somewhere. Blending in. It could be a hot yoga class. It's probably in my living room with a laptop on my lap.

You've probably noticed by now that my blogging skills lately. Well. They kind of suck. I want to blog. I like the idea of blogging. But really sometimes I get too lazy busy. I have been busy writing a new book and doing some awesome Write For Hire Books. I have some workshops coming up and frankly, some days I struggle with things to say to the blog world in general. I'm not so much a teacher in my blogs. I have opinions, but I usually keep them to myself. So that really leaves babbling. And really. Do I need to babble at you? I don't think so either.

I'm definitely not going away. I'm on Twitter alot.

 Find me on Twitter

I also still love me some Facebook.

Look! Here I am on Facebook!

You can also email me with burning questions, like what do I love to eat for breakfast more than anything? Or even better questions of your own. My email is listed on my Contact page on my Website.

So I'm still here. I'm just not here. If you get my meaning. Big wink.

Stay in touch baby.
